Viña MOTÚLLERI Gran Reserva 2011
VIÑA MOTÚLLERI Gran Reserva takes the name of GOMEZ CRUZADO’s most historic label with a heritage of more than 100 years. After a decade in the making, we have released a limited number of magnum bottles so this exceptional wine can continue to evolve slowly for decades to come.
|VINEYARDS||60-year-old Bush vines cultivated in Rioja Alta and Rioja Alavesa. 70% Tempranillo, 25% Garnacha and 5% Viura.|
|HARVEST:||Grapes were handpicked in 200 kg crates and hand sorted at the winery.|
|WINEMAKING:||Cold maceration prior to fermentation. Aged in French oak barrels for 4 years followed by 4 years in the bottle.|
|SOIL:||Clay-calcareous soils with limestone, low in nutrients. The Garnacha is cultivated on steep slopes in iron-rich clay soil with a reddish color.|
In general, the vegetative cycle began later with a delay of 15 days before fruit set. This was offset by a hot, dry summer, and particularly during the later stages of the cycle in September. It was officially designated an excellent vintage by the Regulatory Council of Rioja. A great year for the production of aged wines, with exceptional maturity and great balance.
